Lego Movie

This is a far cry from
most of what I have been reviewing lately but this flick was just too fun to
pass up. Admittedly, I was going to skip on this one until I saw who was behind
the story. If you have not seen CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, you have my
encouragement to find it and see it now (like right now, this review can wait).
It’s probably more epic than this movie and I am not joking when I say that.
Anyway, with a surprising amount of humor, not really part of LEGO’s smaller efforts, this one not only comes across as brazenly entertaining for kids, but adults as
well.
Centered around a
construction worker the fate of LEGO kind hangs in the balance; if “The Special”
can’t fulfill  the prophecy and overcome
Lord Business and his extremely structured way of keeping t...

Rifit

Sometimes we get lucky and make just the right connections and end up having a ball with a new review. That was the case when we met the folks over at Rifit. Rifit is a brand new product, recently launched at Stan Lee’s Comikaze. In fact, they’ve actually partnered with Stan Lee’s Sportsball World, an upcoming game app. We were lucky enough to be sent not only the standard version of the Rifit but also some of the really cool Stan Lee Sportsball World characters.

Still no idea what a Rifit is? Well, that’s probably because I haven’t told you. Since it’s easier to show you than tell you, check out this really cool video:
